Attendees choose from daily activities such as rocketry, theater, archery, scrapbooking, dance, cheerleading, wilderness survival, drama and biking, just to name a few. On Friday night there is an optional sleepover with campfire and dinner.

“Programs like these are not only fun, but also emphasize the development of social interaction and other important life skills,” said Freeholder Kenneth Armwood, Chair of the County’s Business Development and Education Committee.

“This popular, week-long program gets kids out of the house and into the fresh air for fun and exercise,” said Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios. “I commend the Rutgers Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Youth Development program for all of the educational and family friendly programs that they provide.”

The price of the program is $155 for 4-H members and $165 for non 4-H members. This price covers program materials, daily lunch, T-shirt and field trip. Arrangements can be made for early or late arrivals.  The cost for this service is a one-time fee of $25 per child.

To register, call 732-398-5261 by June 16.

In past years, as many as 130 youth took part in this week-long program. Approximately 30 volunteer teen and adult counselors help plan, implement and evaluate the program. Each of these volunteers donates over 80 hours of their time during E-Week.

Middlesex County 4-H is a Department of Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Middlesex County and offers educational programs to all youth, grades K through 13 on an age-appropriate basis, without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation or disability.
